Not sure what to say?

Dear Uncle Jimmy,
Thanks for loving me and making a difference in my life. Thanks for taking care of all family and more. I miss you dearly,

I have heard so much about Jimmy over the years, from my best friend--his sister Cate.

And I have felt so close to him over the years, through her.

My prayers and thoughts are with his family, and with him--I was so touched when Cate told me of the picture he had labeled "One of the Caffrey boys," and that's what I have been thinking when I pray for him.

Love to all the family.

Thanks for taking the time to "gamble" on us kids. I'm sorry I never said "Thank you" or told you how much your short visits meant to me. But I can at least say it now. Jim, you always were a "winner." You've earned your rest upstairs with the "gang."

My brother Jim truely led the life that Mother Teressa advised us to live. Quoting from Mother Teressa, "don't come over here to help my people, if you have even just one person in your family that needs help. If we all took care of our own families, there wouldn't be needy people in this world."

Quoting from Warren Buffett the successful businessman "When you get to my age, you'll measure your success in life by how many of the people you want to have loved you...

I am so sorry for your loss. My prayers are with you.

My brother spent his life loving and giving. He sang each morning after a night of sorrow. Yes, he was flesh and blood, but he never passed a beggar in the street without emptying his wallet. He drove new cars when he was young and old ones when he was old. He was an architect who designed the Grand Island Depot. He had a lovely Irish tenor and loved to dance. He walked 10 miles a day at age 75. Children adored him because he treated them with gentle respect and heard their songs. Jim went to...

Goodbye Uncle Jimmy, may God bless your soul. Say hi to my dad for me.

Thanks for your Military Service.
Past Commander V.F.W.
